So the first one I absolutely true but I've seen it around here with the guys at Zumies only ever talking about arbor or sector 9. Then there's just the second one.
@KaitlynnJanae I wouldn't say that most advice people give is biased so much. A lot of people have their preference and what works for them so they share with others their experiences. There's people in every area of life who think their preference is the best and everything else is wrong, that's unavoidable everywhere. Yes there are a few technical stuff that may be better suited such as certain types of shoes and what not, but who cares? Heck, in the summer I rode in flip flops, tank top and booty shorts (I borrowed them from someone, don't ask) so do whatever works for you and is most comfortable. You shouldn't be hesitant to ask questions anywhere. If someone says something wrong, then move along and eventually someone will answer it for you.
@KaitlynnJanae I honestly think you're just overreacting. Most of the people here are just giving out advice, it's your choice whether to follow them or not. If you don't like it, just ignore. No need for the drama. There are recommended clothing and apparel for boarding, like long pants incase if you fall. Is it absolutely necessary? No. Just if you fall you'll get hurt more than wearing short shorts. It's your choice. No one is forcing you.
loaded longboard has been the best board for me as far as being flexible and managing tight turns and higher speeds seeing as I'm not the heaviest person to manage most other decks. I have noticed about this community tho is that there's a lot of riders who think they know better and have better answers than the rest of us. Silly things like people don't hold the board "correctly" or wear the "proper" clothing. it gets a little ridiculous in my opinion.
@BrendonHolmes Arbor has some downhill boards too, but probably not at Zumies. All you'll ever find there are cruiser boards for all the brands they carry
until i joined this community i had never even heard of zumies XD longboarding isn't super popular in my area
